Following a fine day on Friday lest came what is called the usual " week-end" change, and there were indications on Saturday that rain was not far distant. This eventuated on Sunday, and although the day could not be called a cold one, it was, neverthe less, cheerless and uninviting, for showers fell practically the whole of the day, the total rainfall on Monday morning being 90 points. The earlier portion of that day was fine, but as tbe morning ad vanced further rain fell, and continued until evening, when tbe showers became less frequent. On Tuesday morning the glass showed 32 points. Still there were no signs of abatement, and throughout the day there was scarcely a break.

IF I KNEW. I£ I knew the box where the smiles are kept, No matter How large the key Or strong the bolt, I would try so hard, 'TwouUl open, 1 know, for me. Then, over the land and the sea broad cast, I'd scatter the smiles to play, \ That the children's faces might hold them fast For many and many a day. If I knew a box that was large enough To hold all the frowns I meet, I would like to gather them, every one, ? From nursery, sclio 1 and street. Then, folding, and holding, I'd pack them in, And, turning the monster key, I'd hire a giant to drop the box To the depths of the deep, deep sea. Shocking. "There will have to be some new rules made here or else I shall give notice,"- said the girl in the telephone office to the chief clerk. "Why, what's the trouble?" - "Well, some of the things said over the wires are not fit for me to hear." "Oh! that's all right," was his flip pant rejoinder.
